A REAL PEPTOMIST
II was indeed a treat Thursday
evening, Oct. 27th, to hear among the
others. Mr. Samuel Yauelain of the
Baldwin Locomotive Works. Phila-
delphia, at a gathering of the Assoc-
iated Industries of .Massachusetts,
held, in the Copley Plaza, Boston, de-
liver an address full of pep, encour-

Song of Metal Mesh
From the Vikings bold and the
Knights of old
To the modern lady-fair,
A tapering thread of metal bright
lias become like a silver hair.
At anvil and armorer's forge.
The first rough work was done —
And the links were crude for a pur-
As they fashioned them, one by one.
Then ho, for the tribal wars !
Sing ho, for the Geat Crusadi
And f'e march of Time rolled on,
To tiie Kira of Arts and Trades!
There is nothing so magic as Time.
There was never a wizard like Man.
From a coat of mail to a fairy veil
These two have bridged the span.
Prom a coat of mail —to a fairy veil !
Behold! It has come to pass —
For we weave our metals as dainty-
As cobwebs on the grass !

tag either in blue or white.
The blue tag will be attacl ed to all
bags of "Whiting" soldered mesh.
The white tag will be attached to

The principal object of these t
is to furnish to dealer and consumer
an easily seen and unmistakable
means of :
1st, identifying Whiting & Davis
Mesh Bags, and
2nd ,a method of distinguishing at
a glance between Whiting 4c Davis
bags of soldered mesh, and the oi ti-
Each of the two bags will carry ap-
propriate text; and particular men-
tion will be made of these merchan-
dising tags in our national advertis-

purchasers of Whiting & Davis Mesh
Bags will be told to look for the blue
or white tag when buying a mesh bag.
In addition to Ibis means of iden-
tification the recently designed trade-
mark will be stamped on the frame
of every Whiting & Davis hair. Men-

not appreciate what' nature has done
for New England. We who art 1 liv-

only when others come In re from less
interesting parts and our attention is
called to it that we feel that here is a
good place to live and work.

SEEING ROME OX SIX DOL-
By Ralph Morgan.
Our party of five left on the mid-
night express for Rome, from Naples.
Arriving early next morning at eight,
we bought return tickets at once as
a precaution, and then set out, with
six dollars each, to see everything- in
We just explored the Colisseum,
which is a vast structure, much larg-
er than anticipated. In the after-
noon we went through the Pantheon,
which is not nearly as impressive as
we had imagined.
The second day we visited the min-
or attractions, and finished with a
long inspection of the Forum ruins.
The last day we rode out for three
miles on the famous Appian Way
and explored the Catacombs, where
we went hundreds of feet under
ground. That afternoon we crossed
the Tiber and rode out to the Vatican
and St. Peter's Cathedral, which we
considered the most magnificenl
buildings of their kind in Rome. Sure
we were '-(lead-broke" when we
reached Naples, and suggested to a
boat -man that it would be good exer
cise for him to row us out to our ship,
which he did.
Ralph Morgan is now working in
the Coloring Room at his old job.
Girls, let us all get togethei and
from now on cut and join our bags

him to tell you about it.
Annie E. "Can 1 use your powder.
A Mia S. "No!"
Annie B. "Why?"
Anna. " Because it costs me one dol-
lar a box."
Doris M — n seems rather unsettled
. as to her position not grammatically
speaking, or regarding her employ-
ment, but nevertheless she seems to
have adopted the Full Fashioned po-
sition. This is an individual view-

Walter or Harry.
Vange always has a smile for every-
one, but it can't beat the broad grin
she wears when she spies her beau.
Lena and Gene have postponed
their engagement. We wonder what
Al thinks of it all. Brownie says shell
never trust another man.

"Well, I said the same one Katie
"AVhat was the prayer, my dear?"

Lillian, where did you get that
broad grin that you wear lately? Did
it come when Dandy paid your fare
on the car the other night .'
Xo, Ethel isn't engaged to Clarence
B. He is only a big brother to her.
Elizabeth is sure enjoying her
quart of milk a day and in time we
hope tosee you reach Eva's size.
